Division of Student Affairs

University of Mississippi



Welcome to the Division of Student Affairs at the University of Mississippi.  Currently, there are over 40 graduate assistant positions in our division that offer a wide range of experience from student engagement to administration.  Under the leadership of our Vice Chancellor, Dr. Brandi Hephner LaBanc, graduate assistantships are designed to give students working on a masters or terminal degree the skills needed to succeed in the field of higher education while incorporating student development theory, best practices, assessment, and research. Current graduate assistant positions are unavailable at this time as each position’s director is finalizing descriptions.  A full list will be sent to all admitted Higher Education Graduate Students.

The Division of Student Affairs will host the Graduate Assistant Recruiting Days March 5th and 6th of 2020. This recruiting event allows admitted students to meet with all Student Affairs Directors, Senior Leadership, and Higher Education faculty at the university.  In addition, current graduate students are on hand to answer any and all questions about the program, life in Oxford, housing, and things to do.  Please note, only students admitted to the Higher Education masters or doctoral program for the 2020-2021 academic year are invited to this recruiting event.

If you have questions regarding graduate assistantships within the division, please email Merrill Magruder at merrill@olemiss.edu or Caroline “CC” Chace at cechace@go.olemiss.edu.  Please note that graduate assistantships in the Division of Student Affairs are prioritized for higher education graduate students. Students enrolled in other colleges and school should reach out to their respective program coordinator first.
